A total of 12 performances will be given, on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., and Sundays at 2 p.m.
Widowed Captain Von Trapp (Mark C.

The cast includes Hannah Halvorson as Sister Berthe, David Keiffer as Franz — as well as Anne McNaughton and Kris Carlso as nuns, from Woodbury. Rachel Ward as Sister Sophia and Diane White as a nun are from Stillwater.
“‘The Sound of Music’ is simply the best-known music theater work there is,” said director Bob Neu.
“We've been blessed with a large cast of very talented and extremely hard-working people who have the singular goal of offering our audiences the moving and emotional experience they expect from this great classic.”
